But Hemke counsels against despair for gold investors, writing: 

"Even though there have now been criminal convictions for precious metals price manipulation, the bullion bank trading desks continue to attempt to manage price on a daily basis. Knowing this will allow you to better time your purchases of physical metal going forward.

"Additionally, you must understand that, even though the manipulation continues, prices can and will go higher regardless. Recall that Comex gold was $300 in 2003 and $1,100 in 2015. It's now near $2,000 and the average annual gain in dollar terms this century is 9.3%."
